Family owned and operated since 1952, this local favorite is famous for their gumbo, oysters on the half shell, and Shrimp Delight Salad plus they offer a delicious menu full of catfish, seafood, and steaks.
I live in Atlanta and travel to Monroe often. The Mohawk is my favorite place to eat in Monroe. I especially love the MahiMahi dish. My waiter knows exactly what I want everytime I go there. He starts me off with a cold beer, followed by a great salad with the dressing on the side, and then he brings me my meal with a toasted bread slice with no butter. I leave there delighted and always look forward to my next visit. Sometimes I go there twice a week! Everyone in there is extremely polite and the atmosphere is always smoke free. I strongly recommend the Mohawk to my friends and to anyone that wants have a great meal at a great price!
my most favorite place to eat i love everything on the menu especially the shrimp delight fortunatly my mom is still in louisiana and when she comes to see me in arkansas no one here nows good food lol she brings me a jar of the delight sause i love it i also love the oysters yum yum 100 percent my favorite place to go
A local legend. Fresh-shucked oysters, waiters in white jackets, I would say New Orleans or South Louisiana-style. Has not changed one iota since I first ate there in the mid-1970s. Oyster basket is my favorite. You think you might see Tony Soprano come in, it has that sort of atmosphere.
I have eaten in the Mohawk since I was about 5 years old. I liked the seafood salad then and love it now.
I haven't been in about 3 years, but my wife and I went last night. What a delight! I ran into old friends that I hadn't seen in a while and the seafood salad was as good as I remember! The Gumbo and the Key Lime pie cannot be outdone! This place breathes romance. Just the right amount of comfort. They make you feel special while not overcrowding you like many chain restaurants do. It's as if the staff can read your mind.
My wife was angry with me because she had never been there and asked why I had never taken her before.
We will be back.
My wife and I live an hour and a half away from Monroe, but look forward to each visit to the Monroe Mohawk Tavern. We have been going there since the 1960's, and if you liked the fried shrimp in 1967 you will still like them in 2007. We don't get there that often, but we always get the same waiter, and he knows what we order as well as we do, right down to the salad dressing.
Before the Louisiana smoking ordnance it got a little stuffy at times, but is a very enjoyable experience now that it is smoke free.
Been eating at the Mohawk since the 60's. Nothing has changed over the years. This is a very local restaurant, similar to a neighborhood cafe in New Orleans. It reeks of character and quirkiness. Yes, the waiters are all black men, and the staff seems not to have changed in a long time, givng the place a 'pre-civil rights' feel, very similar to Mandina's on Canal in NOLA. If this bothers you, I recommend showing the staff some respect, and tip well. The place has a very funky feel, and its true that it seems grungy. But the plates, glasses, silverware and furniture are clean. The service is not overly friendly, but I've never been treated rudely, as compared with diners in Manhattan, Philadelphia or Boston.
Like the setting, the food is old-fashioned. Other than the seafood platter, I wish the portions were a bit larger. The fried shrimp are the incomparable. Other fried foods are good. The stuffed shrimp and crabs are very good. People rave about the shrimp delight. The salads are ice-berg lettuce bland. The gumbo is not my favorite (too dark) but many love it. The tartar sauce is unique and by far the best I've ever had. Coke is still served by the bottle. The beer is good and cold. As you can tell from the other reviews, patrons love it or hate it. If you haven't been, you should go to the old Mohawk in Monroe.
My family and I have eaten at the Mohawk in Monroe for over 30 years and have found the food to be consistently good. West Monroe Mohawk is a different story! My family eats out almost every Friday night and 3 of the last 5 trips to Mohawk West Monroe the food has not been good. Oysters on the half shell have been excellent each time but the fried foods were very greasy and the crawfish etouffee was extremely poor.(frozen at wal-mart is better). The other two times in which the food was good, it was very good but I don
